Nevahda not Nevada

Yesterday we we (finally) able to take Tom's bike to the bike shop.  Afer saying our good byes to the Strattons we headed to the Bike Smith.  The shop fixed David's, Tom's, and my bikes no charge except for the cost of the parts.  It was awesome!  We left Carson City about two o'clock, and ended up making it about 50 miles down the road to Wabuska, a town with a population of 5.  Woohoo way to go Wabuska! Five miles later we found a hidden little area on the edge of a farm and decided to crash there for the night.  
A bit of an awkward moment arose when one of the locals drove by us.  We thought for sure that we were cauht and going to be kicked out of the sleeping area we had just set up.   to our surprise he didn't say a word just waved and kept on driving.

This morning we woke up at the wee hours of the morning.  At 415 a motor of sorts turned on, and although we never figured out what it was we did need to head out early to avoid the heat.  Therefore, by 630 we rolled out of a gas station about a mile down the road and headed on our way.

65 miles later we are currently at a McDonalds.  We biked through headwind, very little relative heat, and wished our parents a happy 25 th anniversary.  Now it's time for a nap so that we can avoid some or the heat of he day.  Yay dessert with Sierra  mountains in the background for giving us an excuse to nap!  Goodnight all

Also I want to give a shout out to Donald Strachen for his route to cedar city which is saving us a ton!
